New drone video out of Florida captured an aerial view of the devastation wrought by Hurricane Irma in the Sunshine State. The total death toll stood Thursday at 61, 26 of which occurred in Florida.

"The Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills is responsible for the safety of their patients", the statement said. Three of the victims were found dead early Wednesday at The Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills, after police got a call about a person with a heart attack. By that afternoon, five more had died.
